Used For? For example, the GDP/CGDP can be used in place of the following devices:
• circuit breaker control switch and semaphore
• disconnector / earth switch and semaphore
• ammeter, and ammeter selector switch
• voltmeter, and voltmeter selector switch
• MW meter
• power factor meter
• alarm annunciator panel
• mimic diagram.

There are jumper settings at the back of the GDP/CGDP unit that are set at

!
the factory. These settings shall not be changed and any modification to them
may cause damage to the GDP/CGDP or other modules of the D25.
A D25 equipped with a GDP/CGDP has these limitations:
IMPORTANT • Only external status wetting can be used when the GDP/CGDP is installed.
− the D25’s power supply field O/P is used exclusively to power the
GDP/CGDP.
− connecting another external load to the field O/P will affect isolation, and
possibly overload the power supply.
• The GDP/CGDP reduces the normal -20° to +70°C operational temperature
rating of the D25 to 0° to +50°C.
• The 20-60 VDC D25 power supply is not available with the GDP/CGDP.

Set Up of a Color GDP (CGDP)

Overview This section describes how to set up the Color Graphical Display Panel
(CGDP) on your D25*. The CGDP uses a licensed software package named
the GDP 300 from Quasar Controls, which you must register as part of the
setup procedure. The CGDP software includes system firmware named the
Bay Watcher M100 (BWM100) that runs on the D25 CGDP and a Windows-
based editor named the Screen Builder M100 (SBM100) that runs on a PC.
The diagram below shows the relationship between the PC, D25 and CGDP
(Bay Watcher M100 (BWM100)). The Bay Watcher M100 (BWM100) and
D25 communicate with each other using the DNP protocol over RS-485. The
Bay Watcher M100 (BWM100) is configured using the Screen Builder M100
(SBM100) running on the PC. The D25 is configured using SGConfig which

− Ensure the field source can supply this start-up current without overloading.
• Use the field supply outputs only when external supplies are not available.
− Use of an external supply improves immunity to EMI and increases power
supply efficiency.

Digital Inputs

Digital Input Note: The inputs of all variants of the S Cards are not polarity sensitive: they
Module are bipolar, and are isolated from the D25’s internal power supply.

Digital Inputs The D25 can have up to 96 digital inputs in three banks of 32:
• Digital Inputs 1 to 32 are on connectors A and B
• Digital Inputs 33 to 64 are on connectors C and D
• Digital Inputs 65 to 96 are on connectors E and F

Wetting Types All digital inputs require an input voltage signal large enough to turn on an
optical switch. The input levels required for each D25 digital input card type
are shown in the table below.
• Low Voltage Digital Input cards can each be set to use:
− Externally routed PSU supplied wetting (Supplied Wetting)
− External wetting
− Externally applied input voltage (Voltage Detect)
• High Voltage Digital Input cards can each be set to use:
− External wetting
− Externally applied input voltage (Voltage Detect)

Note The inputs of all variants of the D25 digital input cards are not polarity
sensitive: they are bipolar, and are isolated from the D25’s internal power
supply.

Fuse D25 digital input modules include circuitry that detects the presence of
Monitoring wetting voltage after it has passed through the fuse F1.
Software in the D25 Plant I/O Subsystem (P097 V2.30 or greater) responds to
the signals from each of the three D25 digital input modules and creates
pseudo digital inputs that can be seen in the D25 System Point Database.
If fuse F1 opens or the wetting voltage is removed from the digital input
module for any reason, the pseudo DI for that module will change state and
set an alarm. If a D25 digital input module is not present, the pseudo DI point
will remain in the Off state.

Note: Fuse monitoring can only detect a wetting voltage if the D25 digital
input module is configured for supplied or external wetting.

If the module is configured for voltage detect the fuse monitoring


circuitry will not sense any wetting voltage, and remains in the Off
state

Digital Input Field wiring for all variations of Digital Input modules are made through two
Field FACE-40 connectors for each module on the backplane of the D25 enclosure.
Connections These connectors are provided only if a digital input module is installed in the
D25.

Digital Input Wetting supply source must be provided externally and independently for
Wetting each digital input card.
Selection
To use external or supplied wetting:
• Connect external wetting supply to pins 1 and 2 on FACE-40 Connector A, C
and/or E.
To use the voltage detect input:
• Connect (jumper) pins 1 and 2 on Connector A, C and/or E for each module(s).
Note: Internal wetting voltage to Digital Cards is no longer available. Please
refer to Product Bulletin PRBT-213.

Control Outputs

Control Module The control module can be configured for two basic modes of operation:
• Trip/Close (T/C) – excluding D25 High Current KE Control Card
• Digital Output (DO)
Any other type of operation, such as Raise/Lower, uses the Digital Output
hardware configuration.

T/C or DO D25 software detects what type of digital output command has been received,
(R/L) Sensing and uses the Master Trip and Master Close relays when appropriate.
External jumpering is provided to route the external Control Voltage through
the correct relays for each mode of operation.

Fuse The control module includes circuitry that detects the presence of control
Monitoring voltage on the load side of the fuses. Software in the D25 Plant I/O
Subsystem (P097 V2.30 or greater) responds to the signal from the control
module and creates a pseudo digital input that can be seen in the D25 System
Point Database.
If a fuse opens, or the control voltage is removed from the digital output
module for any reason, the pseudo digital input (DI) for that module will
change state and set an alarm.
If the control module is not present, the pseudo DI point will remain in the Off
state.

Note 1: The fuse monitoring circuitry can only detect a control voltage above
approximately 10 VDC. If the control voltage is less than this level,
the fuse monitoring circuitry will not sense any voltage, and the
pseudo DI point will remain in the Off state.
Note 2: Fuse monitoring works with positive or negative grounded systems.
Note 3: For D25s with Plant I/O Version 2.30, the fuse-monitoring feature
will only work with DC control voltages. Versions greater than 2.30
support AC control voltage monitoring.
Note 4: The D25 High Current Control Card does not have a fuse and a fuse
monitoring circuit.

! The fuse monitoring circuitry has been engineered to detect control voltages
up to the supported maximum specifications of the module. Do not exceed
Caution this level of control voltage. Damage to the module may result.

Note The D25 KE control module does not require hardware configuration to use
the fuse-monitoring feature.

About the DB- The D25KE DB-25 connector option is for use primarily with WESTERM
25 Option D20 KI interposing relay panels (part numbers 517-0146 and 517-0147LF).
For this connection use a multi-conductor shielded DB-25 cable assembly.

Note Ensure that the multi-conductor cable’s shield drain wire is connected to pin
17 of the WESTERM D20 KI DB-25 connector.
Pin 17 of the D25KE DB-25 connector is not connected internally, and
therefore, cannot be used as a drain connection.

Note For Trip/Close operation, the cables used to connect the D25 control outputs
to the D20 KI panels must have all DB-25 pins connected end-to-end.

D25KE FACE- Trip/Close and Raise/Lower digital outputs can be used on the same D25KE
40 Combined FACE-40 unit.
R/L and T/C
When assigning raise/lower groups, always start with group 4, then group 3,
and lastly group 2.
Remember that raise/lower points number in the reverse direction from other
point types: point 32 will become lower point 1.

Note Configuring raise/lower groups with numbers lower than the trip/close group
numbers, or between trip/close groups can result in a very complex and
confusing wiring scheme.

Note: D25HC • The D25 High Current KE module can be used only with a D25 using the
KE with WESDAC Type III DAC board revision 06A or higher.
WESDAC Type • When seal-in is in effect only a software request or an external current
III DAC interruption in the respective circuit (e.g. auxiliary breaker contacts) can
open the affected relay

! • Outputs with connected current supervision must be configured in SGConfig


as well.
Important! • The control outputs are not fused; in order to protect the D25 HCKE Module
from overcurrent, you should add an external protection device. GE
recommends the use of a maximum 5A, 20-second time delay fuse.
• The current supervision is connected to the appropriate control output
channel. The software does not support the use of only the current
monitoring input for other purposes.

The high voltage area of the D25 High Current KE Digital Output Module is near the
D25 chassis. Ensure that relay contacts are de-energized before removing the D25
HCKE DO Module.

AC Analog Inputs

AC Analog The D25 accepts up to 15 AC analog inputs, which are grouped into five sets
Inputs of three each.
The D25 can support virtually any combination of CTs and PTs.
The only restrictions are:
• TB1 inputs must be PTs
• Each group of 3 transformers must be of the same type
If no AC inputs are specified, AC Input configuration is disabled.
Disabled parameters appear in dark green in the SGConfig I/O Configuration
window
Note: AC When configuring a D25 device with all AC inputs configured as PT inputs,
Analog Inputs add a CT input to the AC Circuit and set up as “voltage circuit only”. See the
configured as D25 AC Configuration properties > Circuits tab > Circuit 1 Properties >
PT inputs Voltage Only Circuit check-box in SGConfig.

AC Analog A flexible AC input mapping feature, called E-Z Map, is included.


Circuit • It allows you to configure, for each input of an AC circuit, the physical AC input
Mapping that supplies the required signal.
• It gives you complete flexibility in wiring the AC inputs and assigning them to
the appropriate circuit inputs.

Configuring In RS-485 two-wire mode, the RTS line internal to the D25 controls the transmitter
RS-485 2-Wire (the RTS signal is not propagated on to the serial cable, but is present inside the
hardware).
While RTS is active, the transceiver is in transmit mode. The “preamble” and
“postamble” timers determine the delay prior to transmission, and the amount of time
following transmission that the transmitter remains in control of the RS-485 line.
When the RTS line drops, the RS-485 port is placed back in receive mode until the
next time the D25 requests a transmission.
There is a third timer used to configure the amount of time the receiver must be idle
before the transmitter can be engaged. Although this timer is configurable, most
software applications do not have this timer in their configurations, and thus it is left
at its default value.

Control Signal There are three digital outputs available through the Auxiliary Controls connector:
Digital Outputs • System fail output
• Radio keying output
• Auxiliary control output
The contacts of the relays provide electrical and mechanical isolation for all three
signals.

System Fail This output will be activated during the Power On Self Test (POST) that runs
Output whenever the D25 is reset via software or through cycling of power.
For the Electrical Specifications for Auxiliary Digital Outputs see page 157.
Note: Contact wetting which must be supplied from a source external to the D25

Radio Keying Radio Keying Output emulates “push-to-talk” whenever the D25 is configured to use
Output radio communications equipment that requires this feature.
For the Electrical Specifications for Auxiliary Digital Outputs see page 157.
Note: Contact wetting which must be supplied from a source external to the D2

Auxiliary Auxiliary Digital Output can be used for control functions when use of a
Digital Output standard digital output is not practical.
For the Electrical Specifications for Auxiliary Digital Outputs see page 157.
Contact wetting must be supplied from a source external to the D25

Note When operating the Auxiliary Digital Output using WESMAINT, Only On or

efficient to put the heaviest communication on the XCOM ports.

Note If you place the heaviest traffic on the IED ports, the higher priority IED ports
will often delay servicing of the XCOM ports.
Constant high-volume traffic on the IED ports can cause the XCOM ports to
lose data. By placing the lower traffic connections on the IED ports, you
ensure that XCOM ports always get serviced in a timely manner. Heavier

Configuring the D25 to work with a DNP3 I/O Module

Introduction Your D25 RTU Master communicates with your DNP3 I/O modules through
the DNP3 Data Collection Application (DCA B023). The DNP DCA collects
data from, and sends control requests to, the DNP3 I/O modules.
Refer to 0 Appendix D: Installing and Connecting DNP3 I/O Modules for
installation and connection instructions.
Use SGConfig to configure the DNP3 DCA in the D25 so that it
communicates with your DNP3 I/O module. There are three tables to
configure:
• Remote Device Table: This table contains one record for each DNP
I/O module in the system. The Remote Device Table specifies the
remote devices with which the DCA communicates, the polling
parameters for each remote device, and the points configured on each
remote device. Each record in the Remote Device Table references the
appropriate Remote Device Point Mapping Table(s) and Remote
Device Polling Table(s).
• Remote Device Point Mapping Table: Specifies the number and type
of data points associated with each DNP I/O module.
• Remote Device Polling Table: Specifies the polling type and frequency
for each DNP I/O module.
Instructions and guidelines for configuring your DNP3 DCA can be found in
the following documentation:
• DNP V3.00 DCA - Configuration Guide (B023-0CG)
• SGConfig online help.
Note: When configuring the Time Sync option:
• Disable Time Sync for the D20A and D20K modules
• If Time Sync is enabled on a D20S module, the polling rate may be a
minimum of 2 seconds (it takes about 850ms to do a Time Sync for each
device).

Dielectric Strength

Introduction The Dielectric strength test was performed on the D25 by the manufacturer. It
is not necessary to perform this test again at the customer site. However, if
you wish to perform this test, follow instructions outlined in Dielectric
Strength Testing on page 94.
Only qualified personnel should perform the dielectric strength test
(hipot test) on the D25.
Maintenance personnel should be familiar with hazards associated with
electrical equipment.
The high voltage present can cause personal injury or death.
The dielectric strength test is a destructive test. Performing this test voids the
warranty on the tested equipment.

Chapter 3: Powering-up and Testing

Power-up and Once you have completed all field wiring and communication connections
test the D25 and the necessary hardware configuration, the next step is to power-up the
D25 and verify that it is functioning properly.
Use this section of the guide to prepare for powering-up and learn how to
correctly perform the power-up and other tests:
• What is needed to test: WESMAINT II+, 68K Monitor and SGConfig
• How to power-up the D25 and conduct the BOOT Test: Power On Self-Test
• Digital Input Verification Test
• Digital Output Verification Test
• DC Analog Input Test
• AC Voltage and Current Input Test
If power-up and test reveals that the D25 is not functioning properly due to
software malfunction and you need to download code and configuration files
to the FLASH memory, see D25 Software.

Note Before any of the tests and procedures in this section can be performed, a
valid configuration file must be loaded into the D25’s NVRAM.
If you have replaced the main board of the D25, then you need to restore the
configuration file so that verification tests can be performed.
If you need help restoring your configuration file, refer to the SGConfig On
Line Help.

Testing Utilities

Testing Utilities The following utilities are used to configure and test the D25:
• WESMAINT II+
• 68K Monitor
• SGConfig Configuration system
There is some functional overlap between these components.

WESMAINT Each operational D25 unit includes a WESMAINT II+ facility that allows

Using WESMAINT

On-Line Start- When the D25 is powered-up or restarted, internal processes perform a series
up Test of routines, starting with self-tests, followed by the spawning of all the
software applications that reside in the unit’s memory.
Many of these processes will output progress messages to the 68K monitor, as
they are performed. Having a terminal set up to view these start-up messages
can provide useful information about the operational status of the unit.

Note Terminal emulation software is not part of the D25 system, but terminal

Dielectric Strength Testing

Only qualified personnel should perform the dielectric strength test


(hipot test) on the D25. Maintenance personnel should be familiar with
hazards associated with electrical equipment.
The high voltage present can cause personal injury or death.
The dielectric strength test is a destructive test. Performing this test voids the
warranty on the tested equipment.

Introduction The D25 is rated for 2.2 kV AC for 1 second or 2.0 kV for 1 minute (as per
IEC 60255-27, previously 60255-5) isolation between relay contacts, CT
inputs, VT inputs and the safety ground terminal GND with all filter network
capacitors and MOV protective devices removed. Some precautions are
required to prevent D25 damage during these tests.
Filter networks and transient protection clamps are used between control
power and the ground terminal GND. This filtering is intended to filter out
high voltage transients, radio frequency interference (RFI), and
electromagnetic interference (EMI). The filter capacitors and transient
suppressors could be damaged by application continuous high voltage.
To test 2.2 kV (1 second) or 2.0 kV (60 seconds), the D25 Equipment under
test requires the removal of protective filter capacitors and metal oxide
varistors. Conversely with no modification the D25 can be tested at 110VDC,
which is 85% of the MOV nominal voltage rating.
Disconnect filter ground terminal GND during testing of control power and
trip coil supervision. CT inputs, VT inputs, and output relays do not require
any special precautions. Low voltage inputs (< 30 V) such as analog inputs,
analog outputs, low voltage digital inputs, and RS485 communication ports
are not to be tested for dielectric strength under any circumstance.

7 Connect the test cables according to the test combination being tested.
Refer to the test setup diagram below and your RTU wiring diagram.
8 Turn ON the hipot tester output switch.
Do not touch the equipment under test. You can
be seriously injured by the high voltage present.
9 Observing the indicator on the Hi-POT tester to check if the current
exceeds the maximum leakage current limit of 1mA and causes the tester
to trip, indicating a Hi-POT failure. The EUT is considered PASS if
neither indicator lights.
10 Turn the output switch OFF.
11 Disconnect the test cables from the EUT.
12 Record the test result (if required)
13 Switch another group if applicable.

D25 Software

D25 Software The D25 is factory configured and tested. It contains all software required to
be a fully functional system and upload and download configuration
databases.
You may need to download configuration files to your D25:
• If the D25 has performed self-diagnostics and determined that the FLASH
memory is either erased or corrupted
• Other test messages indicate that the FLASH memory has been erased or
corrupted
• After maintenance or replacement work which has deleted the FLASH code files
Use this section as a guide for:
• An overview of the software and software tools you will use
• Information and procedures for maintaining code and configuration files
• How to test the functionality of the inputs and outputs controlled by the D25
Plant I/O
• A discussion of code and configuration files
• How to remove configuration files from memory
• How to install new or replacement code files using a serial connection

Overview The D25 system software consists of two distinct components:


1. Base System
2. Applications

Base System The Base System Software resident in the D25 provides a consistent, stable
Software operating environment for the Applications that provide specific functionality
to the D25.
The Base System Software consists of:
• Software that is resident on the BootROM
• Base Applications that are required for the operation of the hardware.

D25 BootROM BootROM software is stored in replaceable EPROM. The BootROM


contains:
• pSOS operating system software
• Device drivers to interface the pSOS with the system hardware and software
• Diagnostic tests required to verify the integrity of the D25
• The monitor interface for examining the system in a non-operational mode
• Startup code that verifies and initializes the application software
• A stand-alone system for low-level maintenance and troubleshooting.
− All of the code in the D25 BootROM is duplicated in the standard Base
application load. When the D25 is operating the BootROM applications, it
does not refer to the applications in the FLASH code, and vice versa.

Base Standard D25 Base Applications that are present in every D25 are:
Applications • WIN: the system database manager
• WESMAINT II+: allows an operator to examine and control data locally on the
D25 system
• 68K Monitor: low-level system maintenance and diagnostic tools

WIN The WESDAC Interface Node (WIN) is the database manager for the D25’s
System Point Database.
The System Point Database is central to the D25 software system All data
flowing through the unit is stored in the WIN before passing on to its
destination.

WESMAINT The WESMAINT II+ is the D25’s primary maintenance and diagnostic tool.
II+
WESMAINT can be accessed in three ways:
1. Via the serial port on the front of the D25
2. Through a modem or other serial connection to a programmed COM port
on the rear of the D25
3. Over a LAN or serial PPP connection, as a TELNET session from a
remote network station

Downloading a Configuration, Continued

About Code All D25 units require two distinctly different files to be loaded into memory
and before the unit will become operational:
Configuration
• Code File
Files
− This file is created using GE Grid Solutions’ Software Development
System, and is used to define the applications that can be used in a D25
system.
• Configuration File
− This file is generated using the SGConfig configuration tool, and is used to
enable and configure the operational characteristics of the applications
defined by the code file.

!
The Code File and the Configuration File loaded into any D25 must match
perfectly:
• The applications and application versions used in the configuration files created
Extremely using SGConfig must be the same as the applications and application versions
Important used to make the code file.
Any differences between the applications in the code and configuration files
may result in erratic or unpredictable behavior of the D25

How can Here are some common ways that this can occur:
Configuration 1. The wrong configuration file is accidentally downloaded into a unit. For
and Code File example, based on a D25 that has a different code file installed. This can happen
Mismatch either:
Happen?
− Through a local serial SGConfig download, or
− Remotely over a LAN connection using TELNET or BootP
2. A code file is downloaded that does not match the configuration file that is
presently resident in the D25’s NVRAM
3. Either the code file or the configuration file has been corrupted, either before or
during download

How can 1. Wrong configuration file: usually a result of operator or BootP Server
Mismatch be configuration error, and can only be prevented by exercising care.
Prevented? 2. Mismatched code file: can be prevented by erasing any configuration file that
may be resident in NVRAM before downloading a new code file.
3. Corruption: may require the regeneration of one or both files, and re-
downloading.

What Happens A mismatch error between Code and Configuration files causes the D25 to

do not Match?

How Does the The D25’s base system performs this procedure after each reboot:
D25 React to
This type of 1. Every time the D25 is rebooted, a counter is incremented.
Error? 2. If the D25 runs for 2 minutes without a reboot, this counter is cleared.
3. If the counter ever reaches 20, the base system invalidates the
configuration by writing "KILL" into the configuration file without
recalculating the file’s CRC.
4. The base system then forces a system reset.
5. When the unit comes back up, the base system detects a configuration that
is now invalid and creates a default configuration instead (or loads a
stored back-up configuration, if it is available in memory).

Why is This This process is designed to protect systems that have fatal errors that cause
Done? the system to reset before the user can get into WESMAINT to fix the
problem
While a user can always directly default the configuration by pressing <ESC>
during the start-up sequence, this only works if the customer is physically
present and connected to the WESMAINT port.
Since the D25 can receive files remotely over a LAN, the problem may occur
when a user is downloading remotely and logging in over TELNET. An error
that causes the system to constantly reboot could potentially continue forever,
filling up NVRAM with many error messages. This process enables the D25
to eventually settle down on its own.

When to Erase Rule: If the code file is not the same as the one that was in use before the

Downloading There are two reasons for downloading firmware code files:
Code Files: • If the D25 has performed self-diagnostics and determined that the FLASH
When to memory is either erased or corrupt, then it will display the D25S> prompt on the
Download system monitor when it requires code files to be downloaded.
• If the D25 software program features need to be changed or upgraded, the
existing FLASH memory can be erased, and new code downloaded.

Choice of Three Three techniques for programming the FLASH memory are available. The
Processes technique to use depends on system options and network type.
The choices are:
1. A serial connection from a PC to the WESMAINT port, using third-party
communications software.
− This procedure is described below.
2. Use SGConfig, either via a serial connection to the WESMAINT port, or
via Ethernet using a TELNET and TFTP procedure.
− These options are described in the SGConfig On Line Help.
3. A third-party USB port adapter and software utility is available to connect
directly to the BDM port on the D25 WESDAC Board, which permits
very quick downloads.
− This is the procedure used during manufacture of the D25.

Insufficient When a new code image is downloaded into the FLASH memory of a D25,
Memory the amount of memory reserved for the configuration’s data region, also
referred to as the “Base” region, may not be large enough.
If this occurs, then the D25 locks-up and a message like this appears:
The configuration’s data region overlaps the current
Configuration Header (NVHEADER). Relocate the
Configuration Header / NVRAM to <address>, or set data
size to <size> and re-download. Application will NOT
be started.
If this message appears:
• Unlock the D25
• Increase the base region memory. Consult the SGConfig Online Help for how to
set the D25’s Device Properties to increase the Base Region size.

Prerequisites The following must be available before a FLASH code file can be loaded into
for Serial Code a D25’s FLASH memory:
Download
• Windows PC with terminal emulation communication software loaded.
• The code file, in the Motorola S-record format, located on a local hard drive. If
the file is located on a network or floppy drive, the download may be
significantly slower.
− This file typically will be named either:
down.shx, or
salxxxx.shx
• A WESMAINT cable to connect the PC to the D25’s WESMAINT port.

Before Starting • This procedure will suspend all operation of the D25, and following the
download, the unit will probably require a configuration download before it
becomes operational.
• Consult your System Administrator for access and authorization to perform
system download procedures.
• In Application Monitor, (i.e., when the D25A> prompt is displayed)
configuration files can be downloaded — but code cannot be downloaded.

Using Current-Monitored Digital Outputs

Current- D25s equipped with a high-current control card are provided with 8 digital
Monitored outputs that have current monitoring. The last 8 of the 32 points on the card
Digital Outputs (i.e. 25 – 32) are designated as the current-monitored points.
By default, current monitoring and seal-in is enabled in the D25
configuration. A point enabled for monitoring and seal-in operates according
to the following rules:
Rules Current- • Only pulse type commands are accepted.
Monitored • If the current across the relay contacts exceeds the relay breaking current during
Digital Outputs the pulse operation, and clears before the pulse duration expires, the relay will
open normally when the pulse duration expires and no alarm will be raised.
• If current in excess of the relay breaking current is detected across the contacts
of the point when the pulse duration has expired, the contact will remain closed
and a current seal-in digital input alarm will be activated to indicate the
condition. The local/remote LEDs on the front of the D400 will begin flashing as
well to indicate the presence of the condition. The alarm points are placed at
digital inputs 148 to 155 in the D25 Plant I/O DCA (actual point number may be
offset if there are DCAs placed before Plant I/O in the configuration).
• While a contact is sealed closed, additional control requests on the point are
rejected. If the board is placed in local mode via the local/remote switch on the
front of the D25, the contact will remain sealed.
• The contact will remain sealed closed until the excessive current clears or an
override command is sent. If the excessive current clears, the relay will open
automatically. No additional user input is required. Alternatively, an override
command may be sent via a digital output. These digital outputs are placed at
digital outputs 36 to 43 in the D25 Plant I/O DCA (actual point number may be
offset if there are DCAs placed before Plant I/O in the configuration). If a
control operation is sent to the override digital point for a sealed-in digital
output, then the relay seal-in will be overridden and the relay opened. This may
cause damage to the high-current control card if the excessive current is still
present. The override points remain online even if the control is placed in local
mode, to ensure that the option to override a sealed-in relay is always available.
• A current seal-in digital input alarm that is active due to seal-in will clear when
the relay contact opens, whether due to clearing of the current or do to an
override command being sent.
• D25 Plant I/O DCA will reject control requests sent to the seal-in override digital
output for a point not under seal-in.

D25 Ethernet Card 100Base (10/100Base-T and 100Base-FX)

The D25 100Base card (GE part number 504-0305LF) is a dual-channel


10/100BaseT and 100Base-FX (1300 nm) network card that plugs into the
XCOM slot on the D25. It provides local area network connections for two
RJ-45 connectors and two ST connectors on the rear panel. The RJ-45 data
rate is automatically detected and set to either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps.

Configuration There are no selectable options on the 10/100Base-T and 100Base-FX


Options Ethernet card.
Compatibility The 504-0305LF card is compatible with both the 504-0205 and 504-0207
D25 Mainboards and all D25 Bases P114-0 v2.09 and up, regardless of which
D25 Ethernet XCOM card is selected in SGConfig.
The 580-0993 card is obsolete and is replaced by 504-0305LF. A 100BASE-
FX switch or converter is required when upgrading from 580-0993 to 504-
0305LF, since 10BASE-FL is incompatible with 100BASE-FX.
Fiber Optic You can use the following glass optical fiber (GOF) cabling with the D25

• 50/125 μm core/cladding multi-mode (gradient index) cable
• 62.5/125 μm core cladding multi-mode (gradient index) cable
• 100/140 μm core/cladding multi-mode (gradient index) cable
• 200 μm core Hard-Clad Silica (HCS) multi-mode (step index) cable
You can use the following fiber optic terminations for D25 cabling:
• ST Connectors
When calculating cable length, consider the following optical power levels:
• 100BaseFX optical transmitter power is –15.0 ± 4 dBm
• 100BaseFX optical fiber receiver sensitivity is typically –33.9 dBm

LED transmitters are classified as IEC 60825-1 Accessible Emission Limit


(AEL) Class 1M. Class 1M devices are considered eye safe to the unaided
eye. Do not view directly with optical instruments.

• Standard short lead 5 A CT: 450-0087
• Standard long lead 5 A CT: 450-0088

The optional 42 X 5 A CTs are manufactured with both long and short
primary wires. The unused wire should be removed from the transformer
when installed.
• 42 X Overcurrent long/short lead 5 A CT: 450-0108

If replacement 5 A CTs are required, be sure to order the transformer with the
correct lead length.

Procedure: Over-current Range Calibration (195% - F.S.) (continued)

Step Action
4. Using the D25 AC Input Engineering Value Displays (available
through the B050-0 WESMAINT application), record the raw
magnitude values for each input you are calibrating.
Verify that the reported values are within the following tolerances:
CT Type: 1A Part Number: 450-0107
For Test Current… Expected Raw Value is… Tolerance

4.000 Arms ± 0.05% 8192 ± 200 counts

CT Type: 5A Part Number: 450-0108


For Test Current… Expected Raw Value is… Tolerance

20.000 Arms ± 0.05% 8192 ± 200 counts


5. Calculate the 195-FS magnitude calibration factor for each input
using the data gathered in Step 4.
Use the following formula:
Magnitude Calibration Factor = expected value / measured value
For example, if the measured value is 8195, the magnitude
calibration factor is:
8192/8195 = 0.99963
6. Enter the calibration factors in the Magnitude (195% - FS) for each
input into the configuration (under D25 AC Configuration >
Calibration tab > Internal Calibration tab).
7. Generate and download the configuration to the unit.

If the D25 crashes, call GE Grid Solutions for assistance. There is specific
information that will help us to diagnose what is causing your system to
crash.

D25 Installation Gather the following information about the particular D25 installation that has
crashed:
1. Are there any IEDs, relays, meters, etc. connected to the D25? If so, what are
they, what protocol do they speak, and who manufactures them?
2. Are there any master stations or master remotes collecting data from the D25? If
so, what are they, what protocol do they speak, and who manufactures them?
3. What communications equipment is connected between the RTU and other
devices? (E.G. modems, media converters, line adapters, data concentrators,
breakout boxes, protocol analyzers, etc.)
4. What are the media for the communications? (E.G., leased line, unlicensed radio,
etc.)
5. What is the D25’s part number? What are the part numbers of the installed D25
options? What is the serial number of the D25 and its chassis?
Note: In the case of a repeat crash where the D25 installation has not
changed, you do not have to send the installation information to us
again.

D25 History We would like the history of the D25 that has crashed. Questions that you
should be prepared to answer are:
1. Is the D25 in service? If so, how long has the D25 been installed in the field?
2. Has the D25 configuration changed recently?
3. Has the D25 software been recently upgraded?
4. Was there any unique weather pattern in the area of the D25 prior to the crash?
5. Were there any unique disturbances prior to the crash? (E.G. faults on line,
breakers closing, communication problems, etc.)
6. Were there any field personnel on site during the crash?
7. Was any maintenance being conducted on the D25, the equipment in the vicinity
of the D25, or equipment connected to the D25 prior to the crash?

D25 We require the exact D25 configuration. It is very important for us to use the
Configuration same configuration. A different configuration causes the software to function
in very different ways. We use the configuration extensively when tracing
through the software execution.
Note: In the case of a repeat crash where the D25 configuration has not
changed, you do not have to send the installation information to us
again.

D25 EPROM/Flash part number SALyyyy/zz, where:


EPROM/Flash
yyyy: specific part number for your integration
zz: revision of your integration
We require the exact D25 software load in order to pinpoint the location of
the exception vector. If the integration did not come from GE, we will need
the following:
1. MODULE.MAK file
2. PROJ.MAP file
3. Any non-GE object files and SGConfig application definitions
4. PROJ.LOC file
5. DOWN.SHX file for comparison

D25 BootROM Please provide the BootROM part number which uses either of the following
formulations:
• SBFyyyy/zz or P104/P155-0 VER.zzz
• SBFyyyy-M/zz or P104/P155-M VER.zzz
where:
• yyyy: specific part number for your integration
• zz or zzz: revision of your integration
Note: It is important that the BootROM used matches the EEPROM/Flash
part number. Although there are generally less BootROM releases than
EEPROM/Flash releases, it is important that your BootROM version matches
or is compatible with the BootROM entry in the MODULE.MAK file used to
integrate your EEPROM/Flash part number. If possible, please check that you
are using the correct BootROM.

Crash We require a detailed description of the repeatability of the crash and what
Repeatability steps have been done to repeat the crash in your lab. This indicates to us just
how intermittent is the crash problem. Intermittent problems typically take
longer to resolve. Questions you should be prepared to answer:
1. Has the RTU crashed more than once?
2. What is the frequency of the crashes?
3. Is the frequency increasing or decreasing?
4. Have you been able to recreate the crash in your lab?
5. Does the frequency between your lab crashes differ from that in the field? If so
how?
When investigating the repeatability of the crash, it is very important to
gather information on the D25’s resources. We can look for trends in the
resources to see if it could be related. In the 68K Monitor, type the following
commands prior to the crash:
• QR /V – Displays the free RAM in the RTU
• QR /N – Displays the free NVRAM in the RTU
• PR /P – Displays the CPU profile
• EL /P – Displays the current monitor error log
• QP – displays which processes are suspended, etc.
• QX – displays the contents of all message exchanges

Isolation We require a detailed description of the steps you have undertaken to isolate
the D25 crash and the results of each step. This minimizes any re-work and
expedites a resolution. Questions you should be prepared to answer:
1. Have you been able to recreate the crash in your lab? In either case, detail the
steps taken so far.
2. Does your lab setting differ from that in the field? If so how?
3. Have you been able to recreate the sequence of events that occurred in the field
D25 prior to the crash?
4. What hardware components have you tried replacing and what were the results?
5. What firmware upgrades have you tried and what were the results?
6. What applications have you tried disabling in the configuration and what were
the results?
If the D25 crash can be isolated, it is likely that it can continue to function,
albeit with reduced functionality. Typically, D25 crashes are the result of one
particular software application. If the application is disabled, the D25 will
proceed to run normally:
7. Please list which applications you have disabled or modified in order for D25 to
run.
8. Please detail what functionality has been disabled as a result of these field
changes.

Restoring a After collected all the required data, you will need to restore the D25.
Crashed D25 1. First reset the 68K Monitor error log by typing EL /R, then type BOOT to reboot
the product.
2. If the RTU crashes immediately after rebooting, re-download the configuration
and reboot.

Installing DNP3 I/O Modules in a Rack

Rack Spacing
When mounting multiple DNP3 I/O modules in a rack, or when mounting DNP3 I/O modules in a rack
with other equipment, verify that there is at least one rack unit (RU) of space above and below the DNP03
I/O module to allow for cooling air flow and cable routing (1 RU = 1.75 inches or 44.5 mm).
Required Clearances
The exterior dimensions of the DNP3 I/O module are:
Dimension Measurement
Width 19 inches (483 mm)
Height 5.25 inches (133.4 mm)
Depth 2.5 inches (63.5 mm)
Allow about 14 inches (356 mm) of total cabinet depth, to provide clearance for cables and maintenance
access.
Rack Mounting Procedure
To mount the DNP3 I/O module in a rack:
1. Determine the location of the DNP3 I/O module in a 19-inch mounting rack.
2. Install, but do not tighten the top two mounting screws.
Note: Install the DNP3 I/O module with the LEDs visible from the front of the rack.
3. Slide the DNP3 I/O module over the top mounting screws and drop down into position.
4. Insert the bottom mounting screws.
5. Tighten all four mounting screws.
